Do you have a dog that pulls you along like a steam train pulling freight?
Do you secretly dread walking your dog because they pull the leash so tight that it makes your arms and shoulders ache? If so, walks are probably miserable for you, and, undoubtedly, for your dog too.
You aren't alone!
Many dogs pull when on a leash. This doesn't just make walks unpleasant; it can even be dangerous for both the dog and for you, their guardian.
